Growing Together…

Millimeter by millimeter, month by month, one attempt after another…eventually I could reach it.

I don’t remember how old I was, but I do remember when I could finally touch the top of the doorframe leading out of the living room of the house I grew up in. Along with a column of pencil marks on that same doorframe indicating my height on each birthday, it was noticeable evidence of my growth. The smudges on that doorframe and several others in that house that accumulated over the years also gave testimony to the continued growth (and the seemingly constant dirty hands) of a young kid.

Millimeter by millimeter, month by month, one attempt after another…eventually I could reach it.

I don’t remember how old I was, but I do remember when I could finally touch the top of the doorframe leading out of the living room of the house I grew up in. Along with a column of pencil marks on that same doorframe indicating my height on each birthday, it was noticeable evidence of my growth. The smudges on that doorframe and several others in that house that accumulated over the years also gave testimony to the continued growth (and the seemingly constant dirty hands) of a young kid.

For our bodies as well as our souls, growth is a slow process. On a day-to-day basis, it’s almost unnoticeable. Even so, one day you can’t reach the doorframe and one day you can jump up and touch it. And when you see the results of that growth, it’s exhilarating and joyful!

Over the next year, we will be going on a journey together through the Christian year. You are invited to walk with us as we dive deep into God’s Word, meet together in small groups to share about how God at work in our lives, and worship with us as we move together in the rhythm of the Christian year.

To get started, check out Scripture texts and devotions leading up to the first Sunday of Advent.

Starting on January 1, we encourage you to use the lectionary-based daily devotions found in The Upper Room Disciplines. We also have copies available here at the church for $10.

Throughout the year, be on the lookout for opportunities to grow in faith, love, and service through small groups, worship, fellowship, and mission opportunities. We are so excited about what God has in store for us and for our church in the coming year – join us as we grow together in faith, love, and service!
